Lee Jong Seok and Han Hyo Joo Attend Script Reading for Parallel Universe MBC Drama W-Two Worlds

It’s finally here, or at least the start is finally here for upcoming MBC fantasy sci-fi drama W. It’s gotten a clarification name add to the official title W-Two Worlds, which is two words more to help me write about it going forward since the letter W complicates searching, reading, and writing about this exciting television project. Starring Lee Jong Seok and Han Hyo Joo as two lovers from parallel universes that cross paths, the drama comes from the screenwriter of Nine: Nine Times Time Travel and Queen In Hyun’s Man, both dramas excellent and able to successfully pull off spatial shifts in time. Now it’s less time jumps and more reality leaps, a fantastical premise especially for a K-drama, but that just makes it even more exciting to anticipate for those wanting something different. W-Two Worlds premieres in July after Lucky Romance, and will go up against Lee Jong Seok’s real life buddy Kim Woo Bin and Suzy‘s melodrama Uncontrollably Fond on KBS. I foresee lots of drama binging for me as I slurp up both shows simultaneously.


Lee Jong Seok plays a former marksman turned successful chaebol while Han Hyo Joo is a medical resident in cardiothoracic┬ásurgery. Much as I have a love-hate relationship with Dr. Stranger, it’s still a past role of Jong Seok’s that pops into mind anytime I hear his name associated with anything doctor related, and now I just want to introduce Surgery Jesus to Han Hyo Joo’s character lol.

  1. I’m excited!! I would’ve checked it out for the pairing and the PD (still love Queen In Hyun’s Man!) but the premise is also interesting!! Seems like the leads in this PD’s dramas always have time/space as their enemy.

  2. IMO Lee Jongsuk is really good at acting as well as Han Hyojoo, the plot is refreshing & writer is creative, I liked “W” more but both the titles are classy and new. This one is really anticipating.
    BTW dear koala do u recap both of these dramas?? I really love to read ur recaps for this one pleaaaaaaaaase.

  3. So excited for this drama, plot is new and different than any other dramas currently airing. And as i heard they will be filming 7 episodes ahead of the airing date so it will be like half prepoduced

  4. Han Hyo Joo is so pretty. I love her. She’s not only beatiful but talented and classy. Would have love if her leading man is Ji Jin Hee instead.

  5. Now after reading the blog, I can’t help posing another comment. So I just knew that Lee Jong Seok and Kim Woo Bin are buddies in real life, not only in School 2013, just like Han Hyo Joo and Moon Chae Wan are close friends too. This reminded me of several well-known celebrity cliques in the C- or T- or K- showbiz. It seems actors/actresses have comparable acting chops tend to become good friends to one another. Just a random thought. Never mind!
